My first foray ever into writing villanelles and inspired by the Villanelle Challenge.


A Villanelle Composed on the Eve of May 8, 2018 (Challenge)

Such pleasure hails from going manic:
it's like a rush of endless elation
from the stuff of dreams that is fantastic!

Feelings and loins ablaze and orgasmic,
I'm prostrate with this smutty sensation;
such pleasure hails from going manic?

Desire builds, then runs wild and Jurassic
and hunts for racy gratification
as the stuff of dreams that is fantastic!

To burn with unrestrained lust is no picnic,
but the great highs of this “mad” expression
show such pleasure hails from going manic;

like being one with God and the cosmic,
or saving the world as a blessed vision
in the stuff of dreams that is fantastic!

So, call me mad...or call me poetic,
but this “dis-ease” is now my salvation:
such pleasure hails from going manic,
for the stuff of dreams is most fantastic!
